Create a coffee brand for your fans
First of all, in order to start a new initiative to increase engagement with your audience, you first need to ask yourself "WHY", "HOW", and "WHAT" is going to bring you to a new level of success as an influencer.
Why this new initiative is going to provide more growth and engagement? What do you want to achieve from it and what type of initiative should it be? How my audience will benefit from it? Is it capable of increasing my engagement? Is my selected product the right one for my niche or audience?
Excitement is good but you need to identify, whether it's about profit or a passion that you're most excited about. Regardless of which case it is, the common truth about succeeding is that you have to understand the business, the industry, and hacks in order to leverage fast growth at the least cost possible.
First, let's talk about the coffee industry.
By 2025 the coffee market is expected to reach $85 billion. Great years were seen in the ’90s with growth of coffee companies such as Starbucks USA, Costa Coffee England, Tim Hortons Canada and so that in 2020 are now the top 10 coffee companies in the world, but since covid breakdown consumer behavior has been changing to a coffee consumption at home.
Covid made coffee to break the record of consumption at home in April 2021, having 85% of coffee drinkers have at least one cup of coffee per day at home! Consumers were able to try new brands, tastes, and preparation methods and this has increased the number of coffee enthusiasts worldwide.
These facts must be very helpful to understand the potential of the market, but as more business-driven people start to get interested in the coffee market the more challenging it would be to compete and succeed.
Most common options to start a coffee business.
This is when the market hacks start to get more relevant, as you might start to think on which way might be the best strategy to enter the market. Each alternative has its own hacks and these are some of the alternatives out there:
- Representing an already established brand
- Opening a coffee shop in a high traffic area.
- Starting your own brand.
The first thing to keep in mind is the cost of starting the business. If you are planning on representing an already established brand, make sure that you have enough resources and time to start this type of venture as it's not likely to be profitable within the first few months as initial commitment and down payment could be pretty expensive.
If opening a coffee shop is your go-to method, don't think twice. It's one of the best options to enter the coffee market, but make sure that you are choosing a location with enough traffic to make a difference and a good evaluation of rent pricing.
Last but not least is starting your own brand.
This is probably the option most people have in mind when they start thinking about starting a business, you can create your own brand and sell coffee online or through retail stores.
